Windows 10 Apps slow

Hi, hopefully someone in the forum can offer some help. I have an ageing laptop and I replaced the HDD with a SandDisk SSD Plus, 240 GB. I have Windows 10 loaded and nothing else but my files, ( no other Apps except some from the MS store which I cant delete). When opening Edge it can at times take up to 10 seconds. I know the SSD is at the lower end of the performance scale but I would have thought it would be faster than my old HDD. Is there an anything I can do to speed up the process. Thanks
